Huff Daddy

There has been much hand wringing and worrying over Aubrey Huff and for good cause, he’s been pretty bad. But, one thing Giants fans missed out on last year is that Aubrey is not a good hitter in April and May. Something happens to him every June and he turns into an above average major league hitter. Huff’s 2010 followed his normal splits, only his “bad” months weren’t all that bad. Consider this…here are Huff’s career slash lines (average, on-base percentage, slugging percentage) by month:

  • April .213/.315/.404
  • May .258/.317/.434
  • June .311/.370/.497
  • July .283/.348/.493
  • August .304/.355/.534
  • September .282/.350/.468
So, there you go. Just as last year he was bit better than his “normal” April and May, this year he’s been worse than his “normal” first two months, but not much worse. And I’m not saying he’s going to hit three home runs every game. But, this is the time of the year that Huff (keep in mind this a 10 year career we’re talking about) gets it going. Just thought I’d point that out.
